I have been wearing cologne for 30+ years, but much like wearing pants has not made me a fashion expert, wearing cologne has not made me more refined in my choices. My question is this:

I am looking to delve into the niche scent world, I recently ordered a few samples from LuckyScent (Montale- Dark Purple, Hilde Solani- Cristina, and Amouage- Reflection Man) all based on various reviews, word of mouth and pretty bottles, but I was wondering if there is something I might be missing? I have mostly been a Department Store buyer with the typical fare (Ralph Lauren, Chanel, Burberry, Guerlain etc) and my tastes, while all over the place, seem to run more towards smoky or fruity, the extreme at either end is what I enjoy the most. So is there something that you all know of that might meet one or both of those interests? What I am asking in a nutshell is if one of you could save me the leg work so that I could get back to saving the world in Black Ops II, while smelling as awesome as I know I should?

In addition to the rambling above, I would like to thank you all for the valuable resource this website is.
